Raymond Hettinger added the comment:

The reference from accumulate() to reduce() may be useful.

I'm opposed to most of the other equivalents and cross-references.  They bloat the docs without adding value.  Terry is right in saying that the equivalent for enumerate() is better as a basic loop than as a composition of functional tools.   I think the OP has missed what the purpose of the code equivalents was trying to do.
